Building Condition at Sale.
Address: 3525- 3529 NE MLK Jr. Blvd
Home to: Löyly Spa and Purringtons Cat Lounge.
Completed: January of 2015.
Houndstooth Development acquired this 10,000 square foot property in 2013. The existing brick and cinder block building stood vacant and in disrepair, having served tenants as varied as a flooring company, a Lutheran church, and a Rastafarian club over the many years since its construction in 1949.
Rehabilitation involved an interior demo and facade redesign. Design work was awarded to Orange PDX, the team behind fine restaurants like the Woodsman Tavern, Por Que No, and Double Dragon.
The redesigned facade features an extended height glass storefront, introducing natural light into the two retail spaces. Framing the entryway, grey brick projects a bright facade while blending in nicely with the numerous other brick buildings on MLK. The stained cedar siding contrasts with the brick and marks the separating line between the two tenant spaces.
